The search is on for FM excellence in Ireland

The search is on for exceptional organisations and individuals operating within the facilities management industry in Ireland as the BIFM Ireland region 'Facilities management recognition awards 2013' officially open for entries.

These awards celebrate excellence and recognise outstanding achievements, projects and those teams and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the development of the FM industry in Ireland, and in particular workplace services within the industry, including catering, security, cleaning, maintenance, energy, IT, and health and safety.

This year's award categories include FM Professional of the Year, FM Team of the Year, and FM Project of the Year. Entries will be judged by an independent panel of industry and academic experts from across the UK and Ireland.

Organisations and individuals from the public, private and voluntary sectors are encouraged to enter the awards which will ensure they are officially recognised for the excellent work that they are doing and the benchmark they are setting for the industry.

Stephen Welch, chair of the BIFM Ireland Region, said: “Last year the standard of entries was very impressive and we hope to see even more entries into this year's awards, reflecting the outstanding quality of execution within this field. This is also a significant year for BIFM as it celebrates 20 years of representing and promoting the interests of members and the wider FM community.”
